"Humanizing gun ownership" I wonder if they got the quote right or did they edit it:

"Its a privelige to be able to protect your family"

No Stephanie, its your constitutional RIGHT to protect your family.

They probably quoted her correctly.
I think you missed the meaning of privelege in this example.
She means she "gets to". The "right" is a given. She means being able to protect her family is an honor, kinda like it's a privelege to be selected as best man at a wedding.
So, not as in a right, or an obligation (even though these are also true), but more as in "hoorah, I get to"!

Seems likely, privilege as in "honor", rather than as in "driving".

Wow. I've never seen a more positive article published by a more mainstream news outlet. This is awesome! I especially love their wedding photo. It looks practical and romantic and not tacky at all. :)

One of our fellow members recently got married and was open carrying a side arm at the time. I thought the wedding pictures were quite nice. In the redwoods and a train was involved.

This is great. It's nice to see that there are some people in the media who side with us.

That pick-up trucks not too clean. They're going to be whacking each others butts to get the dust off. That would make a sweet wedding photo too.

Great article, may there be many more like it.
